The thread by HarrisonHJones (here) Proposal: Better management of ignore patterns got me thinking.
I’d like to sync a couple users’ Appdata folders. Specifically, their outlook, Firefox, and Chrome profiles. (I know Syncthing isn’t necessarily a backup, but dumping these to a Read Only folder would make it easy to clone new laptops for them when the old one goes out of service, without having to have theirs on-hand.
I still don’t fully understand ignore syntax.
Is there a good way to add the AppData folder, but ONLY back up folders included specifically? Something like:
-IGNORE ALL FOLDERS.
- EXCEPT THIS ONE.
- AND THIS ONE.
or more likely, given how it seems to process ignores, something like
-IGNORE ALL FOLDERS THAT AREN’T: THIS ONE, THIS ONE, or THIS ONE.
